Ruder Than You / Press

“An impressive album that sits well in the contemporary setting, while still having strong connections to America’s most popular period for ska music.”

“Every now and then a ska band comes around and plays ska from the heart... This time around it was Ruder Than You.”

“Ruder Than You have it all, splashing third wave that's crisp, tight, and exhilarating...”

“Eight great tracks of pick it up, pick it up, dit dit dit, horn laden ska. I'm pretty damn pleased.”

“The musicianship is outstanding... The record is certainly striking as a whole...”

“Ruder Than You is the unsung epitome of modern ska.”

“The band's debut CD Big Step Big Step is a ska revivalist masterpiece.”
